José Mourinho's family are now preparing to return to London. 'The Daily Star' has discovered that the Real Madrid coach's wife and daughter were in London last week, looking around the Camberwell College of Arts, where Mourinho's daughter wants to study next year. Both mother and daughter arrived at Heathrow airport on Friday night from Madrid and stayed at the Chelsea Harbour hotel.
Mourinho's 16-year-old daughter will begin her studies in fine arts in London at the college - just eight kilometres from Chelsea stadium Stamford Bridge - and Mourinho could join his family in making the move to the English capital.
In an interview with CNN earlier in the season, Mourinho revealed he was not happy with his life outside of football in Spain.
"I hate my social life, people on the street insult my 12-year-old son," he said.
Sources consulted by AS, however, do not think that Mourinho is preparing to return to Chelsea as coach, as the Star claims.
It is true that he is that he is fed up of feeling isolated at Madrid, and is jaded by the constant attacks on his character by the press, and the passivity of the Madrid hierarchy in the face of all this criticism. He has taken the decision to move to London as of next year, but he could be planning on coaching Paris Saint-Germain, just two hours from the capital by train.
Mourinho has embarked on similar strategies in his time at Madrid. on 28 February last year he was spotted house hunting in London, but two months later he signed a contract with Madrid until 2016, and increased the salaries of his assistants.
He began insinuating that he wanted to leave Madrid even earlier, in April 2011, when he said: "England is my natural home." One month later, Jorge Valdano, who had a bitter relationship with Mourinho, left the club.
